1. What is the No.1 issue in Port McNeill?
2. Why are you running for Port McNeill council?
3. What, if anything, should be done to bolster Port McNeill’s economy?
4. Why should people vote for you?
1. That depends on who you talk to. Many say the economy is the main issue — people need solid, good-paying jobs to live and stay in the North Island. Others say we need better health care access — hardly a week goes by without mention of some health issue. Others see having something for our teens to do as a priority. All are important and finding solutions that work require thoughtful discussion at the council table.
2. In the past three years I have been active on the Mount Waddington Health Network, the Transit Committee, the Community Forest, and in education. There is still much work to be done and I would like to continue making that positive difference.
3. We need to build on the workforce strategy that has been initiated identifying the gaps in business and industry and addressing them with marketing and/or training.
4. I genuinely care about the people in my community — I call many of them friends. I am committed to making a positive difference for all the citizens of Port McNeill and the North Island as a whole. I have lived for 33 years in Port McNeill and want to help keep this a community that people will choose to live, work, and raise a family.
